Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The rapid digitalization of government services by most ADB DMCs requires benchmarking with best practices, which annual knowledge sharing events and conferences can help achieve.

ADB is called upon to provide knowledge support to DMCs' integrated digital government agendas, and their efforts to maintain highly performing, sustainable, efficient, and transparent government procurement systems. The TA will therefore contribute to the continuing improvement of institutional governance in ADB DMCs.
